. >> that is right, second straight day, jay carney was pressed on whether or not the president misled the country, they pressed on this, they know they're under siege, they say anybody one, this is only 5% in terms of the people who buy their insurance and are getting cancellation letters. but as you know, 5% equals about 14 million people potentially that could get these letters, that is a huge chunk of the market, even though it is just 5%. secondly, they said what the president meant was, not what he said, was you could keep your own plan, if you had your own plan before march of 2010, signed into law, you wouldn't be affected. and after that, you're essentially on your own. the problem is, they're adding all of these contexts and qualifiers, the thing the president did not mention. here is jay carney. >> do the president's words matter? >> well, all i ask of fox and everybody else is to provide the context? >> he didn't provide the context back then. >> there has been essentially five years of debate. >> last year, valerie jared sent out a tweet and said in her words nothing in obama care for
. jay carney just sent this note on allegations of white house pressure being placed on insurance executives. he writes that acquisition is preposterous and inaccurate and ignores the fact every day insurance companies are out talking about the law, in large part because they are trying to reach millions of new customers who will now have new affordable insurance options available from providers through the new marketplace. that from jay carney and reiterated he thinks bob subpoena against obama care from the start and a long time opponent, i should say on any reform. >> you acknowledge he is -- he has been critical of obama care for a long time. so viewers should keep that in mind and the white house saying they totally don't buy this? >> absolutely right, but again, our sources, sources of mine, chris sources are telling -- this is not coming -- >> there is multiple sourcing. drew, appreciate it. >>> more on the promise president obama said repeatedly when he was selling the affordable care act. listen. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your healthcare
, it was almost funny this afternoon watching jay carney being grilled by former white house correspondent ed henry. at issue is how many folks are enrolled in obamacare. it administration stalled and delayed any numbers and what we know today is that after much fanfare and expectations, the website was only able to enroll six people on its first day in business. despite the fact that the number came from a meeting, jay carney didn't want to confirm it. but he won't be able to ignore the bad news for ever and that is because more people are getting the bad news about policy cancellations. a friend of mine with a small business, he told me just this week that isn't sure informed him that his policy for his company will not be renewed when it ends this summer. what can i do, set my friend. i don't want to semi-workers to obamacare and increasingly that of the feeling as people start to see how much they will be charged for care on the website. you should dockable's in monthly premiums and offer coverage you may or may not want. maternity care for 6-year-olds, substance abuse counseling and it i
. and the problem for the administration is, they can spin it and jay carney can refuse to give out the enrollment numbers and they can play games with the timing, but it doesn't matter. ultimately, the numbers are what they are. people are getting these notices. one of the other arguments that defenders of the law have been making lately, that if you get your insurance through your employer, you're really not affected by any of this. that's total and utter nonsense, as we just heard from her. but you hear this from everybody. we got a letter at the weekly standard telling us our premiums would be increasing. you talk to people across the country and they tell you their premiums will be increasing. this affects everybody. >> and it affected the politics here. listen to max baucus, democrat, talking about this rollout. >> i think it makes better sense. let's just see how much of this can be put together, how much humpty dumpty can be fixed in the next month. if it looks like humpty dumpty is not being put back better, maybe we should start thinking about delaying the penalties. it's not right to pe
, the white house pushed back expectations, taping them down and jay carney said that we don't expect those numbers to be very high and we never did. ed henry is at the white house with our report. reporter: embarrassed over the rollout of president obama signature domestic achievement that only six people signed up on day one and was criticized by congressman darrell issa. >> there are no doubt there from a contractor about figures. if the website wasn't working on october 1, that is a dog bites man story i said demanded to know why a parade of top officials including kathleen sebelius did not give the information. >> if you have internal numbers and you're not willing to hear extra numbers, you are doing the kind of propaganda that this administration has done since day one. reporter: they say it will take a couple of weeks to nail down the details. >> why don't you put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we have a reasonable and accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis, consistent with the data release that you see other programs. the f
and we're on the hook. jay carney took the podium. he also said the reason for all of this, the reason for six enrollees, is solely because of the website. here's carney. >> let me just tell you now, november 1st. we don't expect those numbers to be very high. we never did. they're going to be even lower because of the challenges we had with the website. >> that's interesting. then he says they never did know that because earlier in the week, the answer was the president had no idea that the website was not going to work. so they constantly try to have it both ways and that's annoying. i am surprised the experts seemed so surprised about consumer behavior. if you can't get on to the website you're not going to be able to shop around. that's not working. plus, when you go on, if you decide, juan, if you choose to lo look at the subsidies, you could get a generous subsidy, however, consumer behavior is one of, i don't want the hassle, i'm just going to sign up for medicaid. it might be a less generous subsidy, but that's what people do. once you get on medicaid, which is substandard, it
'll take that as a maybe yes, maybe no and move on to something that jay carney said in response to this. >> the fact is we have been enormously cooperative and gone to extraordinary efforts to work with seven different congressional committees investigating what happened before, during and after the benghazi attacks, including testimony of 13 different congressional hearings and participation in 40 staff briefings and the provision of over 25,000 pages of documents. >> is administration correct in -- >> candy -- >> go ahead. >> well, i'll tell you right now, i pamean, jay carney, well over a week well after that had said this was not preplanned or meditated and blamed this on the video and we still don't have answers why that information came out the way it did and the misrepresentations were made to the american people. but there is much information that has been brought forward including why were security requests denied, provided access to these survivors. we asked for months in trying to work cooperatively with the administration, so what he said is not the case. it can't be that th
: spokesman jay carney would not close the door on possibility of cancellation notices coming. but he said that is up to employers who are seeing the rate of health care cost increases come down. >> it is less than 1/3 of increase a decade ago. so problem salved? no problem improved, yes. >> reporter: national federation of independent business revealed a new survey of 921 small business owners who say opposite. 64% of those small businesses say, they are paying more for insurance premiums per employee than in 2012, the small be owner in seattle said she already has a cancellation notice. >> i thought i would get a letter from my company, said your rates have gone up. it did not even occur to me that i would get a letter saying you are canceled. >> reporter: a new "wall street journal" nbc poll suggestions that president took a hit on the issue, asked their opinion on the new law, 6% say it working well, 48% said it needs minor chairmans, 28% want a major overall, 24% to be eliminated. and recent reports of web site woes and other problem, 9% said, made them more confident about the law, 4
was one of about 30 officials before he spoke in the park. jay carney gave a somewhat tortured response to a simple question. does the president support barbara buono. >> i haven't done asked that question in a while. i will have to get back to you. i think he met with her in new jersey earlier this year. i don't have updates on that. he supports her, but i honestly -- sorry. >> the candidate for governor, rodney dangerfield. i'm sure you are saying this is frustrating. this is a governor running for higher office. he had ethical clouds surrounding him and it's something we need to discuss. there is no one more enamored with chris christie than himself. the fact is that there serious issues and if women knew and that's what we were trying to get through with that special election that this governor scheduled for u.s. senate and our election on the fifth, people are focusing on it. people say wait a minute, this guy is anti-choice, anti-marriage equality and anti-planned parenthood and anti-pay equity. he is aligned with the tea party with social values. >> it is hard for a large state l
know, what's the point? jay carney today was, frankly, apologetic. they said they're going to go ahead and make some changes. let me play just as jay described it. >> we recognize that there need to be additional constraints on how we gather and use intelligence. >> so does he have a point? that there should be additional constraints? or is that basically unilaterally disarming as someone told me today, that the u.s., if it backs down now and stops doing this monitoring, it would be very damaging possibly for the security of the u.s. as well as its allies? >> what he said was the diplomatic correct thing to say. the executive branch is in charge of this. they know what they've got to look at in order to keep america safe. this is not a partisan issue. this is a bipartisan issue. we all agree that we've got to do the kind of intelligence gathering that we do in order to keep americans safe. >> so you don't think they're going to back off unnecessarily. they're going to say the right thing, but they're going to do what they need to do. >> the other side would say the same thing under the
was promised. and white house press secretary jay carney now admitting this. >> what the president said and everybody said all along is that there are going to be changes brought along by the affordable care act that man mall. it's true there are existing healthcare plans on the minimum market that don't meet those minimum standards and don't qualify for the act. >> nice to see you, john. >> nice to be here. >> when are politicians going to realize we have videotape. >> i don't know. there was never any nuances. he never said most of you will be able to keep your plans or some of you can keep your plan if the government says it's good enough. he said all of you can keep it, end of story, period. at one point he said this is another quote from 2009, the government is not going to make you change plans under health reform. there was never any escape there or knew abc. now it's proving not to be true for millions of people. >> tough luck for those -- what does that mean for them? it sounds sort of mean. did he promise it. it's not like it was a slip. we got too many of them. >> exactly. ri
points since earlier this month. jay carney was asked about it and here's what mr. carney had to say. >> everybody gets hurt when there's dysfunction in washington. i think it's accurate to say that the dynamic has proven worse for republicans because i think it became so starkly clear by the actions they took that they were responsible for what happened but everybody gets hurt. >> am i to understand that president obama's bad poll numbers are the republicans' fault, too? is that actually what he's saying? >> well -- >> because he doesn't think president obama is part of the dysfunction. >> i think he said that everybody is suffering at this point. but what i want to point out is what i think is the problem for democrats, and i can say this i think very objectively, that the problem that we're going to see these numbers falling because the dysfunction is going to be shorthanded. people are going to associate this dysfunction with a broken website. that's not a good situation for the president to have such a trivial label attached to what is such a more macro dysfunctional environment
is the kind of propaganda this administration has done since day one. >> jay carney pushed back on all this saying they knew numbers would be bad at the beginning and obviously that was exacerbated by the fact the website was not working well. they think the website is getting better now and as people shop around as you were just talking about over time they are actually going to start enrolling but on the question of why they haven't released some of their own numbers, here's what he said. >> why don't you at least put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we'll have a reasonable accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis consistent with the data release that you see for other programs. and the focus here -- for understandable reasons, i guess, is on how low the number might be and i think -- listen to me now. they were always going to be low. enrollment figures for the first one. that's how enrollment periods work. >> that first month is up. here we are november 1st. where are those numbers? jay kacarney says they need abo two more week
're waiting for today's white house briefing to get under way. the press secretary jay carney likely to face more questions about obama care and the political tell-all book "double rap."
german report that the president actually knew merkel's phone was tapped. and white house spokesman jay carney said the u.s. is just keeping up with new technologies helping keep americans safe. >> if we're going to keep our citizens and our allies safe, we have to continue to stay ahead of these changes. that's what our intelligence community has been doing extraordinarily well. these capabilities are part of the reason we have been able to foil numerous terrorist plots and adapt to a post-9/11 security environment. >>> want to take the story straight to our chief washington correspondent, host of "the lead," jake tapper. you talked to dick cheney. we know cheney was at the center of setting up this post-9/11 spying apparatus. what did he tell you about this? >> well, he was obviously not eager to talk in detail about these programs. and if you look at the documents that edward snowden leaked to various media outlets, it indicates that the surveillance program, some of them started as far back as 2002. i did ask vice president cheney about it because obviously, it was the story of day.
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske
't ready. jay carney said the president was shown this website ahead of time as though it was ready. so, figuring out who inside the organization knew but failed to communicate is important, but, more importantly, because so many other areas including the risk of private information coming out in a website that isn't ready. we really need to ask those questions and see what's internally going on. >> here is the department's response to the susubpoena. since october 10th, the committee has made five separate requests for a wide-range of documents, their timeline was not feasible given the vast scope of their request. it goes on. we are disappointed that the committee believes a subpoena was necessary, however, it does not change our intent to continue to cooperate with them to produce documents as we were able to. sebelius apologized for that house hearing for 3 1/2 hours yesterday morning. she will next go before the senate finance committee that is next wednesday. >>> senator ted cruz's father told supporters during his son's senate campaign that he would like to send president obama,
. jay carney was asked about, hey, what's the number going to be? he is now tamping down expectations, as well he should. watch. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is yes because that was always going to be the case. >> oh really? how come the first thing you said the reason you can't get on is the high volume. and how many democrats do we hearsay there is high volume because people really love this thing. six really loved it the first day. >> how can you assess low if you don't have a number? that is what is interesting as well. they're saying we don't have the information but it's low. you must be looking at something to give that low assessment. >> the website has been disastrous. i've got to give the president credit, he said seven weeks ago, he asked is it ready and they told him it was ready. again punting and blaming, not taking responsibility. that's the vice president trying to save the president, who has been busy lately, i guess, all summer. now let's talk about the other element to this. the report we told you about yesterday that insurance companies
